Here at British Swim School, our mantra is “Survival of the Littlest” and our swim program focuses first on water acclimation and survival techniques, before moving into true stroke development. Our focus on water safety helps prepare you or your child to survive an emergency situation in the water.
Swim lessons are offered year-round in 300+ convenient locations throughout the US and Canada, with a small student-to-instructor ratio to ensure each swimmer receives individual attention and guidance. Our professional instructors will share their joy of swimming and keep you motivated and inspired throughout your journey.
At British Swim School, safety is our top priority. We focus on water acclimation and survival techniques in our program, and we train our instructors to act fast in case of an emergency. We want you or your child to feel safe in the water because we know it’s essential for learning.
With 40+ years of experience and tens of thousands of lessons taught, we have a proven track record of success. We teach each swimmer differently, based on their needs and abilities. Our personalized approach to teaching ensures you get the attention necessary to learn and succeed.
Our instructors are among the best in the industry, having completed our comprehensive British Swim School instructor training, as well as the national lifeguard and first aid certifications. Many also have experience in competitive swimming, lifeguarding, or teaching. Each instructor is passionate about working with you to help you achieve your goals, no matter your age or skill level.
We also know the number of swimmers in each lesson can affect your ability to make progress. That’s why we only have four students per instructor when swimmers attend lessons by themselves, and six students per instructor when parents are taking part in the lesson, too. This way, each student gets the attention and feedback they need to learn quickly and effectively.
We’re accredited by the United States Swim School Association (USSSA), which means we meet high standards for safety, instruction, and customer service. We believe that our commitment to excellence and our love of teaching children to swim sets us apart from other swim schools, and we’re grateful for the support of our communities.
“Our toddler loves swimming here more than any other swim school we’ve tried before! They do not pressure any steps at all and they work well with him at his own pace. Now, swim lessons are an activity we look forward to every week.” Gordon K.
“Our little girl is learning to love the water, and she’s getting more comfortable with each swimming lesson. Plus, we feel much safer knowing that she has survival skills!” Maverick M.
“The swim instructors are great with my son. He was afraid to learn how to swim but was very comfortable right away. He’s learned so much over the past couple of weeks, and I’m very happy with my decision to join the British Swim School family!” Roman P.
